The body of a 55-year-old woman was found on the roof of a building in central Nicosia, police said on Wednesday.

First indications are that the woman was homeless and living on the roof of a block of flats on Pindarou Street in the same building that houses ruling Disy’s youth wing Nedisy, and is adjacent to the main headquarters of main party.

“The scene has been cordoned off and examinations are being carried out for the identification of the dead woman, as well as for the cause of death,” the police said.

Reports suggest it was a case of sudden death and that police do not suspect foul play. Police had been alerted by workers who went on the roof to carry out repairs.

A post mortem is to be carried out on Thursday.
